Digitalverein - Zu Hause² [THN014]


Published April 29, 2002
Topics Dubhouse


Joerg Schuster is a laptop musician who transforms his inspiration, which he catches either from the old-traditioned industrial buildings, but also with its energy-saving windmills futuristic landscapes of Dortmund, located in the central Ruhr-area. Since Joerg is also photographing and into videoart it was no question that he created something special with the Flash5 intro.



"Zu Hause2" is his first album as "Digitalverein", which is his other project besides "Sensual Physics" on Source-Records.com. The difference between both projects is the more deep dub-affinity on Digitalverein, while Sensual Physics focuses more on danceable dubhouse around 127 BPM.



The opener "Der Heimat Tiefe" is dedicated to his local living place. Dusty hihats mark the steam coming out of the chimneys while the deep pads and subtle chipchords wrap the smell of hard and sweaty work, which workers have to afford in the mines. "Winterdumpf" has been produced early this year, while coldness and snow fell off the clouds. Distant delay stabs, claps and fading strings mark the snowy path. In the third track "3rd Und 6dis" Digitalverein shows his calm and melancholic side. Chords like weeping willows create a very melancholic mood i think, though Digitalverein says its still positive. The song is dedicated to his 3 year old son. On "Dub Sex" he becomes solid with well structured working chords n stabs and a shuffling basskick which makes your head nodding to the once again deep groove. "Warme Schicht" is maybe the best song here designed for chillout environments with its wide cutoffed and reverbed scapes. Very freezing, almost polar atmospheres and in best Thule Iceland fashion. "Tiefer ins system" starts also with notched and hissy pads, deep dub chords and shuffled shakes construct another dusty tune. With "Treppe Nach Unten" Digitalverein fires a furious final with a dubstomper rocking the clubs, marching bassdrums, shuffling hihats, pointed snares and sounds from steam engine locomotive go the straight direction until bended sunny strings fade out the track in glamour. As bonus we enclosed the Digitalverein liveact of the Mekka festival brings tunes released on his Sensual Physics album on Source Records, his first appearance for Thinner on Thinnerism01 and some unreleased tracks.



Press Reviews




Vor ziehmlich genau einem Jahr startete Thinner als Dub-Techno-Netlabel. Dafür, dass schon die erste EP ziehmlich beeindruckend war, sorgte vor allen Dingen Digitalverein mit seinem Track "Abends am Gasometer". Dieser spielerische, entspannte Dub machte neugierig. Und siehe da: Digitalverein war im Netz praktisch omnipräsent, hatte sich mit schicken Websites und MP3.COM Präsenz eine solide Basis aufgebaut, um langsam aber sicher das Ruhrgebiet als Konstante auf der deutschen Dub-Landkarte zu verankern. Doch jetzt ist mal wieder Zeit für Digitalverein im Thinner-Style. Sieben Tracks, einer großartiger als der andere, und dazu noch ein 43 Minuten langes Live-Set. Zu Hause ist eine extrem deepe und dabei wahnsinnig vereinnahmende Liebeserklärung an den Pott, an rostige Industrieruinen und dreckige Landschaften. Pflichtdownload.

Subject: excellente
usually this much musical goodness is released as an ep, aren't we lucky to get a full length?
production so deep and complicated that it is the audio equal to reading a book...
download it, sit back, and enjoy...
